Jackson barely got a dusting of snow Thursday night but the mountain range to the east got a nice covering. Several people were out enjoying their snowmobiles.

Last year Spring Creek Resort in Jackson sent us an email saying they got 338 feet of snow!! I wondered if it was a typo!

I'd share with you if I could. Not only have we had the wettest and chilliest summer, but Winter has begun early and one of the coldest here. Or so they say. But it is Alaska There is almost a foot of the white on my yards counting the 5 inches of fresh we've received in the past two days with more to come through the night.

Trick or Treat was extra fun this year. I seen the costumes on all the kids. Usually you see the costumes under coats and snow boots. After having to clean snow off the sidewalks in front of the house.
Figures though, I don't HAVE to work in it all winter, and now we don't have it all winter

Grand Targhee was opening this weekend and they had enough snow to ski. The only snow in Jackson was little patches here and there. There will be no skiing at Snow King until they get some snow! The slopes are bare. Everyone we visited with was in a state of disbelief. One couple had flown in from Florida to ski.

There was some talk of three Colorado ski resorts laying off staff. Copper Mountain, Steamboat and Winter Park. Guess they did an online survey and didn't get the positive feedback they had hoped. I believe all three are owned by a Canadian company.

Default adding info to snow total

I think the 338 feet was a typo. I'm a wyoming native that lives in Washington State. The North Cascades are the perennial world record holders for snowfall. The record is passed around between Mount Ranier, Mount Baker and Oregon's Mt.Hood. I believe the current world record is held at Mount Baker and is around 110 feet. This could be verified via web search if one was inclined to check. So I think they meant 338 inches which is still very good. I would think 50 or 60 feet of snowfall would produce ample snow pack for skiing. In this area it is typical to see 60 to 90 feet of snowfall at the ski areas which usually translates into a 20 foot deep snow base on the runs. I also think the snow at Jackson is likely drier and better skiing than anything out this way.

as mentioned they meant to say inches. Just over the Tetons at Grand Targhee Ski Resort, in Wyoming, they can get over 500", that's inches, not feet. Up in Jellystone it can be way more than that.

As far as the weather being the same as it was last year, unless you were born yesterday, that rarely happens.

I say it's only November, Winter has just begun

While it does snow as early as Oct. doesn't mean the brunt of winter starts at the same time. Wyoming is unpredictable lol
